Re: any on know how to set the distributor shaft c
I assume you have the distributor out of the car. If not, take off the cap and mark the position of the rotor relative to the housing before you remove it.
If it's out of the car and you don't know which way it goes back in, roll the engine up to top dead center on number one, then install the distributor so that the rotor is pointing about to 5 o'clock assuming you are standing directly in front of the car looking toward the rear.
Hope this helps.
